810 Squadron Training will begin in October 2020. We are striving to provide a safe training environment which will include a mixture of virtual and in-person training under guidance and public health measures for group activities.
Parent fundraising will still be important to ensure the 810 can return when it is deemed safe to do so, but Bingo and Casino dates may be impacted. Please ensure you watch your email for details.
Please follow provincial health orders and maintain your social distance. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

A Note From Supply
The Cadet Dress Regulations outlines the standards to meet with wearing the uniform. How to lace boots, tie a tie, sew badges, how to wear your hair, etc. See: Cadet Dress Regulations
Do not cut pant legs, they must be hemmed only.
Do not glue badges onto the tunics, they must be sewn only.
Washing - your cadet uniform washes very well and looks better the more it is washed. It is expected that all parts of your uniform are washed regularly and you should be washing your short sleeve shirt every week.
Check here often for updated information on cadet activities.
The Squadron is now located at Allendale School: 6415 106St Edmonton, AB.
